Zomato goes full-stack food-tech; introduces Whitelabel platform for restaurants

Earlier today, Zomato announced the launch of its Whitelabel Platform (zomato.com/whitelabel), a full suite of technologies for restaurants to run their business on the internet. The key feature on the platform is the ability for restaurants to launch custom-branded native mobile apps to help them connect with and engage their customers, and operate at internet scale.

The food-tech segment has seen a lot of action over the last year. As per a Tracxn report published in December 2014, the food-tech segment has seen a total investment of USD 1.2 Billion in 2014 alone. While the dine-out and online ordering segments have seen a large chunk of this funding, internet-first restaurants have also seen their fair share of interest from investors.

Currently, most of the internet-first restaurants primarily function on a ‘no/own kitchen + own delivery + on-demand’ model. The industry is seeing early signs of this concept germinating in certain urban clusters. However, a vast majority of the industry is dominated by the unorganised sector of asset-heavy restaurants, and there is a huge untapped opportunity to get them online, build innovative services, and drive more delight to customers. Zomato’s introduction of White Label Apps aims to capture this opportunity. Zomato White Label Apps is a plug-and-play platform which will power a restaurant’s digital identity with ease, enabling restaurants to spend more time focusing on their core business of food, translating directly to better dining experiences for users.

Ashish Goel, Chief of Product & Design, Zomato said “While speaking with a lot of restaurant owners, we realised that most of them do not have an app or digital presence and they want to harness the power and distribution of the internet and mobile to grow their business. And that there is no one single service provider for restaurants which can give them the entire suite of technologies required to run an internet presence closely integrated with the operations of their business. We see this as an opportunity to have a larger impact on the food-tech ecosystem, as well as create a larger overlap between tech and food.”

Pankaj Chaddah, Co-Founder, Zomato said “We are excited about the pace of innovation at Zomato. The bigger picture is increasingly becoming clearer to us and we are hoping that in a few months, we will be able to solve a large part of the pain points that users as well as business face in the industry.”

Zomato White Label apps offer features such as targeted push notifications, real-time information and menu management, and marketing tools to merchants at their fingertips. The app is based on a subscription model that bundles Zomato’s existing restaurant management app – Zomato For Business – into each subscription for free. These White Label apps integrate seamlessly into all the ancillary services Zomato offers, such as Online Ordering, Table Reservations, in-app Cashless payments, and the upcoming Zomato Base (point of sales system).

Zomato White Label Apps have already caught the attention of some top restaurant brands. Summerhouse Cafe in New Delhi, Miyabi Sushi in Dubai, and Shizuku Ramen in Melbourne are amongst the first 100 restaurants that have already signed up in the last week.

The Zomato White Label Platform will be available to restaurants in all 22 countries Zomato is present in currently.

Eat Chops The Tomahawk Way

Zomato organized a Foodie Meet-up at Tomahawk, Kapitolyo last Wednesday. Because it was just a stone-throw away from my office, I attended the meet-up and walked away with a happy heart and tummy.

Tomahawk just opened last June 2014 and has been getting a lot of good feedback since then. When I entered the restaurant, I thought it was pretty small but I didn’t realized that it has a second level until one of the waiters led me to our table. Tomahawk has a nice interior and cool frames with quotations that will bring in some good vibes. It’s perfect for team buildings and small gatherings as they can accommodate up to 50 pax.

It was my first time to attend Zomato’s foodie meet-up and I liked how they do it. Before the much awaited food tasting, we were given the chance to get to know our fellow foodies. Everyone has to do a short introduction about their selves and that made us comfortable. Wouldn’t it be nice to dine with people whom you know?

To start of, we were served with five appetizers.
I personally love their buffalo wings which was perfectly cooked. I didn’t have to dip it because it was already good on its own.

Buffalo Wings, Php 180

Among all the chops that were served to us, my top pick is Grilled Tomahawk Chops with Dirty Rice and Mac and cheese. They have a hefty serving which be shared by two. I hate how their dirty rice can ruin one’s diet. It was extremely good!

Grilled Tomahawk chops, Php295 ( Go Dirty Rice option plus Php25)

Their Grilled hanger steak with wine sauce was the star of the night. This is not yet included on their menu but every foodie who attended the meet-up approved that this should be served at Tomahawk ASAP.
I am a sucker for medium rare steak so, this is definitely what I am going to order on my next visit. I think I can eat their steak on a daily basis. Haha! I was so happy when we had another round of Hanger Steak.

Well, aside from the Grilled Tomahawk chops, I bet my husband will love their Grilled Rosemary Chicken with Dirty rice and Mashed potatoes. Rosemary blended well with their chicken.

Also a must-try is Tomahawk’s Sausage and Sauerkraut with a big serving of fries. I am not really a fan of sausages but their sausage is just too good to resist.

Sausage and Sauerkraut,Php215


Match any of their dishes with Peach Iced Tea Carafes or any of their imported beers for a more delightful experience.

There were a lot of dishes that were served to us, but the dishes that I have mentioned are the ones that I highly recommend. Visit this resto soon to know how to enjoy food #TheTomahawkWay!
